What is the best and cheapest database to use to build my web application.
I'm hoping to this build this web application with Java and Javascript and host it on a commercial server.

Well, the cheapest is free!  I would give a slight edge to PostGreSQL but MySQL is also very good.

Depending on how much data you expect to store, and how much concurreny you need to handle, an embedded Java DB like HsqlDB might also do the trick.
